Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant and NBA coaching legend Phil Jackson have had an interesting relationship. There was some belief that the two had a strained relationship after some harsh criticism of Bryant from Jackson, but it looks like they have made up and their relationship is all good once again.

TMZ Sports has reported that Bryant and Jackson were recently spotted eating breakfast at Wendy’s Place in El Segundo, and they were able to obtain photo evidence of the two men sharing their meal.

Here is the photo of Kobe and Phil’s meeting that was released by TMZ Sports:

To top it all off, Jackson reportedly paid for the meal when the bill was delivered.

They were said to have been “chummy” during the meal as they discussed basketball and had a good ole morning.

You can now certainly come to the conclusion that Kobe has forgive Phil for saying that Michael Jordan was a better shooter, defender and overall leader than Kobe in his book, “Eleven Rings.”
